Boston’s largest neighborhood is more than a stone’s throw away from the historic waterfront, but that doesn’t mean Dorchester is lacking in fresh seafood. Case in point: Ashmont Grill, a cozy venue found just a couple steps away from the Ashmont T stop. For Thursday patrons, be sure to arrive promptly at 5 pm to get your $1 oyster fix. From there, happy hour continues on until they run out of stock.
The Ashmont Grill’s back patio continues to be open for business for both brunch and dinner. Sit next to the cozy firepit for extra ambianance or warmth on those still-cozy nights, all the better to enjoy the famous Trainwreck Fries loaded up with melted jack cheese, bacon, jalapenos, sour cream, and scallions and one of the best burgers in town—plus some new warmer weather menu items like the Vegetable Pesto Rotini and a Grilled Caesar Salad.
